[Returns the binding name for a key (combination). Discards key modifiers until it finds a binding.

key1, key2, ... = GetBindingKey(command)

Arguments

command 
The name of the command to get key bindings for (e.g. MOVEFORWARD, TOGGLEFRIENDSTAB)

Returns

(Variable returns)

key1 
string - The string representation(s) of all the key(s) bound to this command (e.g. W, CTRL-F)
key2 
string

Example

local command, key1, key2 = GetBinding("MOVEFORWARD")
DEFAULT_CHAT_FRAME:AddMessage(BINDING_NAME_MOVEFORWARD .. " has the following keys bound:")
if key1 then
     DEFAULT_CHAT_FRAME:AddMessage(key1)
end
if key2 then
     DEFAULT_CHAT_FRAME:AddMessage(key2)
end

Details

Even though the default Key Binding window only shows up to two bindings for each command, it is actually possible to bind more using SetBinding, and this function will return all of the keys bound to the given command, not just the first two.
